What a great looking set in really rare pink mother of pearl!

This pair has stayed together for what is getting close to 100 years, which is pretty amazing in and of itself.  They've aged well!

The amp has seen some recent service and runs well.  It isn't a screamer or your next gigging amp, but it is a relic that is totally functional.  There is a little separation of the MOP covering and part of the upper back panel, but everything is still holding together nicely nonetheless.

The steel has a great sounding pickup especially considering it's 1930's build! It's a light little beast.  A modern output jack has been added to allow you to use a regular guitar cable.
